Welcome to GFIG!

Hi there! Welcome to Good Food Is Good (GFIG). Thanks for joining me.

I’m working on getting this here site set up with more good food for your mind, eyes, and spirit. Please excuse the mess.

Now, I wouldn’t let you leave empty-handed, after you came all this way to check things out. Here’s a list of ideas for building community, compiled by the Syracuse Cultural Workers. (Want to hang this on your wall? Get yourself a poster.)

Ways to Build Community
turn off your TV
greet people
look up when you’re walking
leave your house
sit on your stoop
plant flowers
ask for help when you need it
talk to the mail carrier
use your library
play together
buy from local merchants
put up a swing
know your neighbors
organize a block party
pick up litter
honor elders
turn up the music
listen before you react to anger
turn down the music
read stories aloud
have pot lucks
garden together
hire young people for odd jobs
share your skills
help carry something heavy
bake extra and share
help a lost dog
take children to the park
sing together
dance in the street
fix it even if you didn’t break it
seek to understand
share what you have
start a tradition
ask a question
listen to the birds
open your shades
barter for your goods
mediate a conflict
seek to understand
learn from new and uncomfortable angles
know that no one is silent though many are not heard – work to change this
